The Power of Performance: Theater in Conflict Zones

Events | Programs

Joanna Sherman, a pioneer in arts-based peacebuilding and artistic director of the New York-based Bond Street Theatre presents riveting video footage and explores the impact and value of theatre as a tool for engagement and reconciliation, including recent work in Afghanistan, the Balkans, Haiti, and the Middle East. For over three decades, Bond Street has used performance and theatre for healing and empowerment in some of the world's toughest conflict zones, helping communities of street children, rural women, traumatized populations, and refugees, among others, find pathways forward through collaborative projects. This is a rare opportunity to hear a true visionary in the field of arts and social change.

Co-sponsored with Lewis & Clark College and Boom Arts as part of the Theatre of Global Engagement: International Collaboration and Social Change Arts & Lecture Series.
